Sick And Tired? Here's What To Do About Training.

As athletes our approach to training can be detrimental to outcomes. We start a season with a goal, a training plan, and a drive to get’r done at all costs. We have set up a training season, with a goal time, and goal placement in mind. Our wiring at an early age is to ignore signals from the body and be tough in our athletic pursuits. You have workouts on the schedule, and need to check off those boxes. You need to show commitment at all costs to the “plan”. This mentality of checking off the boxes, ultimately leads to sub optimal performance on race day. Then the head scratching starts. Illness is an experience we all have in a season. How you deal with illness during training can be a variable that can make or break your race day performance.

Bars, Bars, and CORE Bars!

Is it me, or is the pre-packaged “bar” aisle taking over Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and every other grocery store in the U.S.? The registered dietitian in me goes “sigh….. another one lost to preparing fresh, whole food snacks.” And then the mom-athlete-nutritionist-director-business owner-too busy for anything woman goes YIPPEE! Finally we have an aisle with some bars that use real ingredients, ones we can pronounce, put in our gym bag, and feel comfortable eating from time to time. Here is a decent list to start with for bars that we, at The Core Diet, feel good about recommending to our athletes.

And, if you’re being honest, there is no candy you don’t like, just candy that you wolf down, inhale, and devour. That bit about handing out healthy treats? Idealism is nice, Dr Oz, but you’ve never looked into the eyes of a five-year-old and seen true loathing.
